What Eye Conditions Are Tis Clinic Treated?

This clinic treats the following eye conditions:

  • cataracts. This disease is characterized as a partial or complete clouding of eye lens located inside the eyeball between the iris and vitreous body. The lens is naturally transparent and plays the role of a natural lens that refracts light rays and passes them to the retina. The lens that has lost transparency during cataracts ceases to transmit light and vision deteriorates until it is completely lost.
  • glaucoma. It is a progressive disease resulting in irreversible blindness. Due to increased intraocular pressure in glaucoma, retinal cells are destroyed, the optic nerve atrophies and visual signals no longer enter the brain. A person begins to see worse, peripheral vision is impaired, as a result of which the visibility zone is limited.
  • dry eye syndrome. It is a change that occurs on the surface of the cornea and conjunctiva due to the absence or poor quality of the lacrimal fluid. As a result, the eye surface is poorly moistened, which can cause discomfort, vision problems, and injuries to the cornea and conjunctiva.
  • corneal abrasion (scratched cornea). If the corneal epithelium is damaged, a disease such as corneal erosion can develop. The corneal epithelium is a very thin tissue strip, consisting of only 5-7 layers of cells. But it is these cells that provide eye protection from adverse environmental factors.
  • conjunctivitis (pink eye). It is an inflammation of the conjunctiva or mucous membrane that lines the inner surface of the eyelid. It usually affects both eyes, although it can start on one and spread to the other within 1 or 2 days. In the first eye, the inflammation usually is much more complicated. Conjunctivitis caused by an infectious agent (bacteria or viruses) is characterized as acute.
  • refractive errors. It is a widespread visual impairment. It occurs in cases when the eye cannot clearly focus images from the outside world. The result of refractive errors is blurry vision, which is sometimes so strong that it causes visual impairment.
  • astigmatism (oval-shaped cornea). It is a certain refractive disorder, consisting of a violation of the natural form of the lens or cornea. This disorder entails incorrect scattering of light rays and forms a distorted image on the retina.
  • presbyopia. It is an eye disease that is common in people between the ages of 40-45 when nearby objects look vague. When reading a book, you have to stretch your arms forward.
